HOUSTON | MD Anderson Inpatient Bed Tower | ?FT | ?FLOORS

Project in brief - Information is a bit sparse but there are indications that yet another fairly substantial tower will be rising in the MD Anderson section of the TMC in the not too distant future. Much of the news comes from a few sources.

One was a preview of the 2030 Master Plan from last year

The remainder comes from from the UT Board of Regents from May of this year, regarding what will be demolished or altered to compensate for the temporary adjustments in lab space.

Inpatient Bed Tower:

U. T. M. D. Anderson Cancer Center is preparing to construct a new inpatient bed tower to be
located proximate to and interconnected with the institution's Main Building complex, on a site
currently occupied by the Percy and Ruth Leggett Jones Basic Research Building, the Bates-
Freeman research building, and the Anderson Central Building. The proposed Bed Tower
Mobilization project will involve a multi-step approach to include the vacating of approximately
527,100 square feet of existing buildings and preparations for demolition. To consolidate
science research laboratories and clinical support functions currently housed in the buildings to
be demolished, approximately 400,000 gross square feet of space will be renovated in other
facilities proximate to existing inpatient services and associated clinical science laboratories.
The project will also include abating vacated spaces, facility modifications to accept connections
for temporary bridges installed around the site for the future inpatient bed tower, and detailed
analysis and planning to facilitate the decoupling of utility infrastructure in anticipation of future
building demolition.
